Schezwan Fried Rice

Schezwan Fried Rice is a Indo-Chinese recipe. Spicy, hot and filled with flavors. Fried rice is a very simple and easy recipe made from steamed rice stir-fried in a wok, often with other ingredients like vegetables, egg and meat. Schezwan fried rice involves a process of making schezwan sauce and adding the steam rice into it. This is almost everybody's favorite dish and so is mine. Love to have it during rainy season.

NOTE :  
  • Can skip any vegetables mentioned below in ingredients table
  • Can add boiled chicken, mutton or egg along with other vegetables.
  • Need not have to use exactly the same vegetables what I have used.
  • Number of green chilies depend on how spicy they are. I am using 3.
  • We are not using any hot spices.
  • You can cut the vegetables to the shape you want.
  • Optional - Can use coriander leaves and spring onions at the end to garnish.
  • I am non adding exactly 2 glass water for 1 glass rice grains so as to prevent it from getting overcooked. 
  • Be careful when frying garlic and ginger as it quickly changes its color and there is a changes of it getting burnt. ( Tip : As soon as you see the garlic's shrinking in size be ready with your next ingredient )
